Witness Statement on Omar Khadr

A witness statement is a signed document recording the evidence of a witness. A definition used in the UK is "a written statement signed by a person which contains the evidence which that person would be allowed to give orally".[1]

In the United States, witness statements are generally eschewed in favour of a discovery process including deposition of oral testimony given by key witnesses prior to trial.[citation needed]
